Need inspiration for 20 acres

Post by tcorbitt20 » Tue Dec 04, 2018 12:04 pm

Looks like we’re going to be building on this piece of land next year, and my biggest concern is what to do outside (and how to pay for it, but that’s my problem...). The most I’ve ever had before is .25 acre, but this is about 21 acres. I’ve tried to mark the line and put where we plan to build and put a driveway. I need some inspiration. What do you suggest? A hay field has been mentioned, but I don’t know that I want to tie it all up where I can’t do something else I might like. The green spot on the left will be a greenfield for hunting. Thanks!

Soccer/football field. Nursery. Crops. Sod farm. Plant some kind of spreading grass and have fun with atv/dirt bike. Winery. Turn into forest. Corn maze. Hedge maze. Pumpkin patch. Landscape the whole thing and have your own botanical gardens.
